Space Men (released in the USA as Assignment Outer Space) is a 1960 science fiction film starring Rik Van Nutter and directed by Antonio Margheriti. It follows an assignment by Interplanetary News reporter Ray Peterson aboard a space station in the 21st century. Despite problems with the base commander, he is eventually responsible for stopping a space ship which threatens to destroy the Earth.
The film was released in the United States as part of a triple bill with the East German film First Spaceship on Venus and theJapanese film The Mysterians. It was director Antonio Margheriti's first assignment, and this film showed what quality he could deliver while working with a minuscule budget.
